  1. It’s getting close. I understand this season keeping him. There were innings that needed an arm. The team wasn’t going to be good. All bets are off now
  2. I agree. Selfishly I like 1 pm Sunday and 4-6 on Saturday. But I get not everyone has my schedule. Having a Saturday night game helps people like @Italian Marlins Fan So it’s probably good to keep a weekend night option available too. Whatever schedule casts the widest net to give everyone an option.
  3. I’m curious to hear what everyone here has to say about the idea regarding the early start times for weekday games next season? The easy cynical response would go something like “HAHAHA Jeter doesn’t understand Miami time….everyone is always late now you’re making the games earlier”. I think it is the sort of thing that is really difficult to project and the only way to know if it would impact attendance positively is if you actually test it out. Personally, I live too far as it is to attend weekday games. Regarding TV though, I can see myself missing early innings a lot more as a result because I often have things going on during that time of day. But if it means being able to stay up and see the end of games, or allowing my younger kids to stay up and see those innings where things are tight and competitive, then it could have a positive impact that doesn’t necessarily reflect in the gate number. The gate matters, but its about so much more than the gate. I feel like this decision is being made with children in mind and also to entice the work crowd to leave their office and go right to the game. The kids angle may work for people that are relatively close to the stadium. I’m not sure about the work crowd. I used to work in downtown Miami. Granted this was a while ago and I had a different job back then. Hours were rough. Fitting in anything social was not happening for me. But hey, small sample size, n=1, and all that. Hope it works out on all fronts. Go Fish. #F-YeaJeter
  4. Sometime this summer some pieces from the lease were posted here. The language had something about the obligation to play games in Miami. I could be remembering wrong but I thought it said they had to play all 81 games. If that is the case there can be other sections that permit special events like the game played at the army base, this series in PR, and any other international promotional series. I’m curious to know how the language works in the lease to protect the county and city and still allow for the marlins to take part in events like this one in Puerto Rico
  5. You’re right. But we can still complain in the short term
  6. Remember how happy we all were on the trade deadline ?
  7. F the Braves and this inning
  8. What the hell is up with this routine severino did telling Kelly to bother the radio guys. Very weird
  9. You know why people keep visiting his office? They always come away in stitches.
  10. Nice to see Brinson get a couple hits last night. This team is not trying to win or trying to lose games. The games are played everyday and the outcomes aren’t really important. Prior to the trade deadline it seems to me sitting on my couch that the team was gaining a lot of confidence and putting together lots of great games. The deadline deals were exciting. We dealt from our pitching. But as a result of that and IL players we’ve been forced to give starts to guys like Robert Dugger. Now it’s really just about giving the right players the right amount of work against the right level of competition. Next spring training is going to be really exciting. The 25 man roster is going to be really exciting next year after whatever date passes that needs to be passed for service time manipulation
  11. Brinson: “you guys want another shot at turning two?”
  12. This is great. Half the league is all white the other half is all black. Now the uniform nerds can lay off the marlins alternate for a while and hate on these instead
  13. No he’s a fucking loser and anyone who uses hyperbole like that is wrong.
